Friday Flowers: Baby's Breath

Yay! It's Friday and time for a new Friday Flowers post.

Couples are finally beginning to spend again, but budgets are still definitely tight. Thankfully, with an open mind and a bit of creativity, a bride-to-be can have her cake and eat it too (figuratively speaking of course).

Most of the brides that I meet with these days still have dreams of grandeur, which often include the use of tall lush topiary arrangements. As you know, these dramatic centerpieces aren't cheap.

To accommodate one of my stylish client's budgetary needs, I created these delightful pieces.

Yes, I know baby's breath typically is considered cheap and fugly, but when arranged in mass...the result is completely chic.

Each of these arrangements ended up costing roughly $61 each wholesale, including the vase. That breaks down to 8 bunches of baby's breath @$5 each, plus a $18 tall glass vase that I spray painted black (additional $3). You could spray paint your vases whatever color best suits your color theme. Anyway, in the land of $350-$750 tall centerpieces...that's arrangement gives you one heck of a lot of bang for your buck.

Enjoy your weekend!
